the hope that it would be placed on the 
new brick gateway. Mr. Byrd told 
something about the athletic policies 
and programs of the institution, but 
more about the good condition the 
University was found to be in by the 
legislative investigating committee 
during the past session, and the good 
attitude of the legislative body toward 
the University. He gave much of the 
credit for the good principles and ad- 
ministrative success of the Univer- 
sity to members of the University 

ite. G. F. Pollock, now secretary- 
treasurer, gave remarks on Alumni ac- 
tivities and emphasizd the need of 
more letter contacts among classmates 
and the desire of more group meetings. 
He also recommended that a day be 

.-ted as a charter or founder's day 
at which time group meetings in all 
parts of the country would be held.

Model Unveils Memorial 

Probably the most outstanding event 
of the Commencement Week program 
the unveiling of the Terrapin 
Memorial, located in front of the 
Ritchie Coliseum, on class day. The 
model for the Terrapin Memorial per- 
formed the gracious act of unveiling 
his enlarged likeness in bronze. The 
Terrapin is a gift of the Senior class. 

Ralph I. Williams, president of the 
Student Government Association, was 
sponsor of the idea and was very ac- 
tive in making the memorial possible. 
In his dedicatory remarks he express- 
ed his appreciation to those who had 
generously given him assistance. 

Edmund C. Mayo, '04, president of 
the Gorham Manufacturing Co., Provi- 
dence, R. I. played a very important 
part in having the Terrapin made. H. 

C. "Curley" Byrd, vice-president of 
the University, was also very active 
in making the memorial possible. His 
firs'. nf i i-ai specimen 

from his home town, Crisfield, Md., on 
the Chesapeake, the "Home of the Dia- 
mondbacks" The base of the memorial 
was given by the Student Govern- 
ment Association. Upon the mem- 
orial will be inscribed the results of 
the annual Sophomore - Freshman

MARYLAND'S showing in football, 
o.Tl basket-ball and boxing have been 
reviewed in previous issues of the 
Alumni News, so we will give our at- 
tention this time to taking a glimpse 
at the spring pastime. 

Burton Shipley had a highly capable 
nine that doubtless was prevented 
from making a much better rei 
than its satisfying accomplishment on 

count of a rainy season that kept 
the team from getting in shape early 
and caused >i\ games to be called off. 

By W. II. ("Bill") Hotti.i. 

lie.- iter losing three ol the 

in st four tills, the nine won four of its 

last five to nla<. -ii the right 

ol' the ledger. One of its late 

was over Navy. 

Bi K\ only by a greal Hopkins' 
ten and scoring over Navy and 
Rutgers among others, Jack Faber's 
lacrosse charges rated as the second 
Inst in the country. It was a great 
accomplishment considering the ma- 
terial at band and it was lack of cap- 
able reserve strength that kept the 
Old Liners from having an even chance 
to beat Hopkins. Until a couple of 
Maryland's regulars had to be taken 
. i he game to rest up on account 
of the heat, the Old Liners played the. 
Blue -Jays to a standstill. Hopkins' 
edge came from its wealth of reserves 
who matched the regulars in ability. 

In addition to its collegiate battles, 
the stick team won over Hopkins Var- 
sity Club, made up of former Blue Jay 
stars, and Mount Washington, the best 
club team in the country, in practice 

Faber has been named as one of the 
coaches for the picked American squad 
that will play the Canadians in four 
games at the Century of Progress Fail- 
in Chicago, with Norwood Sothoron, 
defense player, ami Gordon Pug'h. cen- 
ter, among' the players selected to par- 
ticipate. Pugh, Sothoron, Car, Pfau, 
goal, and Parker, Faber and Bill Wood, 
attack, were on various all-state first 
teams and a number of others were 
placed on second tens. 

GEARY EPPLEY, agronomizing 
track mentor, had a nice team with 
the exception of weight tossers, pole 
vaulter and hurdlers. It was his fine 
array of runners, including Earl Wid- 
myer, his ace, that kept his rivals 
worried and gave spice to the cam- 
paign. However, he had enough pow- 
er to beat Hopkins, a bright spot in 
an interesting campaign. 

Widmyer was unbeaten in the 100 

and LJ'JH yard dash's in the six dual 
is and picked up added honors in 
big meets. He won the Southern Con- 
tice indoor crown, was third in a 
blanket finish in the outdoor title race 
and ran second in the invitation cen- 
tury in the Penn Relay carnival. 
Eppley retains practically his entire 
til for next season, among them an 
array of quarter-milers who should 
give Maryland a relay team like some 
ol' its honor gathering quartets of the 

TENNIS took a leap upward during 
the past season when Les Bopst, 
ociate State Chemist, took charge 
of the netmen in an effort to bring the 
spoil out of the ruck. He did bis job 
weli, although only three of seven 
matches were won. However, four 
were prevented by rain which the Old 
Liners undoubtedly would have won. 
As it happened all of the matches with 
the strongest rivals on the schedule 
were played. . 

AS TO FRESHMEN sports, more 
than the usual number of capable 
players will be gained from the la- 
crosse squad that was best yearling 
ten in history at Maryland. Some fine 
material also will advance from the 
track combinations; the tennis aggre- 
gation will provide a couple of netmen 
of note, while the baseball nine, not up 
to the usual standard in strength, will 
send up only two or three diamonders 
of varsity caliber. 

But athletic endeavor at Maryland, 
in the final analysis, is making the 
besl of what they have; and, meeting 
with the success that has crowned the 
Old Liners' efforts should be highly 
gratifying to those in charge and to 
the alumni. Maryland's good name 
and its ability to schedule the leaders 
in various sports, without question, 
should be sufficient recompense if 
nothing else were attained.

gratefully appreciates the prompt re- 
sponse (if those whose names appear 
in this list and hope that their friends 
and former schoolmates will do as they 
have done. 

The dues from association members 
are the only source of revenue for 

publishing the Alumni News and 
carrying on many other duties of the 
Alumni Asociation.

Dr. S. S. Buckley, '93, a Former Alumni 

Association President, Succumbs 

Iwith regret that we announce 
the loss of one of our most able 

alumni leaders in Dr. Samuel S. Buck- 

ley, who died, July 6, 1933. Dr. Buck- 
ley was president of the Alumni Asso- 
ciation from 1904 to 1907. He was for 

a long time connected with the Uni- 
versity, but at the time of his death 
he was an associate animal husband- 
man of the Bureau of Animal Indus- 
try of the U. S. Department of Agri- 

A short while before his death he 
underwent a minor operation from 
which he had apparently recovered, 
when a blood clot developed and he 
died within a short time afterwards, 
at his home in College Park. 

Following Dr. Buckley's graduation 
from the -Maryland Agricultural Col- 
lege, now the College Park Branch of 
the University, he went to the New 
York American Veterinary College 
where he graduated in 1896. Shortly 
afterwards he returned to the Col- 
lege Park Schools as professor of vot- 
ary science and veterinarian of the 
Experiment Station. He was also 
consulting veterinarian for the Mary- 
land State Board of Health at that 
time. He went with the U. S. D. A. in 

Dr. Buckley was born in Mount 
Washington, Md. He is survived by 
his two daughters, Helen and Dorothy, 
having lost his wife several years ago. 
Interment was made in the St. John's 
Protestant Episcopal Cemetery at 
Beltsville, Md.

WHILE nut hall of the summer is

College Park. 

is tin' root of 
most <>f the conversation and, while 
it is hoped thai a hotter line will be 
developed than that nf last season, it 
an uncertain proposition as the 
main strength of the forward wall 
will have tn come from players on las! 
reshmen eleven. And just how 
>ophs will pan out always i^ highly 
problematical. At any rate, the line 
material appears to be better than it 
was in the fall of 1933. 

However, while the linemen offer 
great hopes for improvi 
hardly likely that the backfield will 
offer as much power on offense as de- 
fense, and the main reason will he the 
loss of Al. Woods. As a blocker, he 

was a big part of Maryland's attack 
and as a defense player he was on a 

par with the host. And along with 
Woods went Ray I'oppelman and Paul 
Kierium. two capable hall toters. 

Other letter men who will he mis- 
sing When the Old Liners gather on 
Labor Day for the start of practice 

will he Charles Keenan and < .< 

Cole, tackles; .John Mitchell, guard, 
and Hill Wood and Frank I lines, ends. 

In addition to the above, Val Rouzcr 
and John McDonald, who played most 
of thi' time in the regular guard 
positions have gone. Rou/.er failed 
Bcholastically. McDonald had to leave 
-chool mi account of a lack of finances, 
but may return. 

This leaves the following insignia 
winners slated to he hack: Rufus 
Vincent, end; John Simpson and John 
Mayhew, guards; Al Farrell, tackle; 
Tom W'ehh, center; Willis Bonner, 
end or hack; Dick Nelson, Norwood 
Sothoron, Bar! Widmyer, Joe Crecca 
and Buckey Buscher, backs. Farrell, 

though, will he unavailable for Bcho- 

last H 

Just how many of last year's fresh- 
men squad will he hack is a question 
that can he answered only by the roll 
Call, hut those expected to be 

on hand and to he a hie; help are; 

Louis Funis. Carl Stalfort anil Ber- 
nie Buscher, ends; Ed Minion, Charles 
Callahan, Bill Oarrott, McGrudcr Hull' 
and Tom McLaughlin, interior line- 
men; Harry Gretz and Bernie Cum- 
mings, centers; and George Sachs, 
Charles Yaeger, Steve Hatos, John 
and Frank Ohristhilf. Albert Benja- 
min and March McCoy, hacks. 

In all there were about -•"> freshmen 
who remained out all last fall and pos- 
sibly 20 of them may he on hand this 
season. In fact, sophs will be pre- 
dominant on a roster that will number 
around the •'!"> mark. 

As it looks this far away, Mary- 
land should he able to develop a fairly 
well balanced eleven next fall and to 
look to 1934 with hopes for a really 

g 1 team. Football teams don't just 

"happen" at College Park, they are 
developed here. 

SIX of the eight letter winners in 
basket-ball and four of the five 
regulars of the L932-33 team are due 
hack. George Weber, regular guard, 
and Fred Stieber, a reserve, were the 

Rufus Vincent, big center, who led 
the Southern Conference in scoring; 
Spencer Chase and Bob Snyder, regu- 
lar forwards, and Buckey Buscher, 
regular guard, Warren Evans and 
George Walker, utility performers, 
doubtless will hear the brunt of the 
coming season. 

Bernie Buscher, Ike Rahbitt, Fred 
Scheele and Malcolm Johns are the 
most promising additions that will 
come up from the freshmen. 

EIGHT boxers got letters and a half 
dozen of them are due to don the 
gloves again. They are: Harry Car- 
roll, featherweight; Harold Burns, 
lightweight; Lyman McAboy and 
Monte Jones, 155 pounds or middle- 
weight; Stewart McOaw, light-heavy, 
and Al Farrell, heavyweight. 

Bernie Keener, welterweight regu- 
lar, and Victor Wingate, who also 
fought in that class, were the only 
letter men to graduate. 

There was no freshman team but a 
capable lot of additions should come 
up from intra-mural competition which 
wound up with a title tourney. 
* * * 

AS usual all schedules will be at- 
tractive. All of the lists will be 
printed in due time but the football 
card is ^iven here so the old grads 
may plan in advance: 

September 30 — St. John's at College 

October 7 — Virginia Poly at Norfolk. 
October 14 — Tulane at New Orleans.

the University's Dental School, are 
being shown at the World's Fair to 
exemplify the "Century of Progress." 
This set of teeth, according to research 
made by Dr. J. Ben Robinson, Dean 
of the Dental School, were made by 
Dr. John Greenwood before 1798. It 
is believed that the teeth were in the 
possession of Dr. Greenwood, foi 
pair, at the time of Washington's 
death. They were given to the school 
in 1K7") by Dr. John Allen who obtain- 
ed them from a grandson of Dr. Green- 
wood. The teeth are a relic of thai 
period before dentistry became a pro- 
on. It was not until 1839 that the 
first dental school was founded, 
known as the Baltimore School of Di 
tistry, which is now the Dental School 

of the University.

Rest House 

"In order to further clarify the let- 
ter head I'll explain that the "Rest 
House" is a miniature (extremely 
miniature) hotel maintained by the K. 
M. A. for visitors to Chinwangtao; and 
the circles linked in the black diamond 
indicates the British and Chinese in- 
terests linked in the K. M. A. Is that 
clear or should I have never mentioned 
it in the first place?" 

"It is very quiet here at present or 
I wouldn't be here to begin with, 
though fighting continues at Haiyong 
between the Chinese and Manchuko 
forces, the latter place being 15 Chi- 
nese li (approximately 5- miles) dis- 
tant. From where I sit I can see two 
Japanese destroyers at anchor as well 
as a British destroyer, the latter being 
tied up at a K. M. A. wharf. There 
is always a British warcraft of some 
sort stationed here for the protection 
of the British people employed here 
by the K. M. A. and of British prop- 

"There is evidently a Japanese air- 
craft carrier anchored near here — out 
of sight of land — as every so often 
Japanese planes cross overhead, com- 
ing from the direction of the gulf. 
Sometimes they are observation planes 
and sometimes bombers that proceed 
further inland and dump their dyna- 

American Army Camp 

"An American army camp is located 
here (it is used as a summer cam]) for 
the Fifteenth U. S. Infantry, located 
in Tientsin). At present the camp is 
occupied only by a winter detachment 
of about 12 men. 

"My presence here is accounted for 
by the fact that we have an office at 
Chinwangtao from which we control 
certan of our agencies in a specified 

area known as the Chinwangtao Ter- 
ritory, and my job is supervising that 
particular territory from the head 
Office at Tientsin. Right now the Jap-

The Military Question 

-Many Alumni who have not already 
heard about the outcome of the case 
regarding the student who last year 
refused to take the regularly pre- 
scribed Military Training at the Uni- 
versity, because of his conscientious 
religious convictions. The case was 
tried in the trial court of Baltimore 
where the University lost. The case 
was then appealed to the Court of Ap- 
peals, of Maryland and in this Court 
the decision was reversed in favor of 
i In University. 

Excerpts from the opinion of the 
Court, delivered by Judge Pattison, ex- 
plains the decision: "There is no law. 
federal or State, known to us or to 
which our attention has been called 
which exempts registered students in 
the University of Maryland from tak- 
ing the required military course. In 
the absence of such law, we are of 
the opinion that any demand made by 
them to be exempted from such course 
could not be legally enforced . . In 
preparing for defense, a military 
training for those who may be called 
upon to take arms in defense of their 
country is a necessary incident there- 
to and any effort on the part of any 
of the people to hinder or defeat the 
Government in so doing should not be 
countenanced by the Courts so long as 
the Government acts in the lawful ex- 
ercise of such power."

Sophomores To P1*J Prominent Part, 

Although Ten Letter Men Will 

Be \ mong I andidates 

By \V. H. Hottel 

"Curley" Byrd has sent out word to 

f his football-inclined students to 

be at College Park on Labor Day. 

tember 4, for the start of 


A majority of them will be sopho- 
res — 23 in fact — and a great deal 
of dependence will be put in the new- 
comers to the varsity squad for what- 
ever success the Old Liners may eke 
out of their difficult 1933 schedule. 
It would not be at all surprising if the 
line was made up mainly of sophs as 
Tom Webb, all-state center last fall, 
appears to be the only forward who 
has a good grip on his job. 

In the 20 leftovers from last year 
are 11 letter men, but this does not 
carry as much significance as it would 
indicate offhand. Maryland used so 
many men last fall in an effort to get 
a working combination that more 
players than ordinarily is the case(18) 
Some of them would not 
• made the grade in an ordinary 

While the Old Liner gridders seems 
sure to play some good and inter 
ing football in the coming campaign, 
it hardly can be expected that a really 
Wood team can be developed before the 
; campaign, when some of the 
promising -nphomore talent will have 
the experience that is essential in the 
greatest of all college pastimes. This 
h the fact that rom the 

ranks of the leftover- alx* will be 
comparatively light, makes the build- 
ing-up outlook rather bright. 

However. Maryland does not intend 
to give up the ghost in advance in any 
of its games this fall, and unless 
things break badly the Old Line out- 
fit should be rather formidable by the 
time the late stages of the 1933 cam- 
paign are reached. It should be a fair- 
ly capable defensive team from the out- 
. but with its limited number ol 
hacks its offense will have a tough 
time making headway against some of 
the powerful elevens that will be met. 

Mostly Home Talent 
Ninety per cent of Maryland's 
players, as usual, come from within 
the State and the District of Colum- 
bia. Only six of the men hail from 
other territory, and 10 of the 43 ask- 
ed to report never had any gridiron 
experience before matriculating at 
College Park. 

In fact, Maryland, compared to most 
of the teams that it will meet during 
the season, will present a bunch of 
greenies, and, in eight of its ten games 
is sure to concede much in weight, ago 
and experience. However, this is 
nothing new and offers an incentive 
for the players and coaches to ac- 
complish something really worth 

Football teams have to be "made" 
at College Park, and this year is not 
an exception to the rule.

and throat specialists of this country 
and was recognized as the guardian of 
the speaking voices of many of the 
nation's leading statesmen. Dr. Rich- 
ardson was born in Sardis, Ohio, Jan-

WE HAVE our private depression 
in the oil business out here — have 
had for the past; several years. It has 
been due to the fact that the Chinese 
(or Mexican) dollar, which is based on 
silver currency, has dropped very 
materially in the relation of its value 
to the American Gold dollar. When 
I came out in 1928 our American dol- 
lar was worth $2.15 in Chinese money 
— now it is worth approximately $4.85 
in Chinese money (has been worth 
over $5.00). Since we import all of 
our oil from the States (the sale of 
kerosene for lighting purposes consti- 
tutes by far the largest part of our 
business) we must naturally raise our 
prices accordingly as we sell our prod- 
acts for Chinese currency. Accord- 
ingly as we raise prices our volume 
of business decreases — this has also 
been true with other groups. Added 
to this difficulty at the present is a 
vicious price-war which has been 
brought on by Russian competition 
on the oil market and which is the 
most serious problem that has devel- 
.1 in years. Because of the above 
factors we have reduced our staff by 
about fifty per cent in the past two

Homecoming Plans Underway 

Arrangements have been started 
for the Annual Homecoming to be 
held November 25 at College Park. On 
this day Maryland will meet its old 
rival, Washington and Lee, on the 
gridiron as the feature of the day. 
That evening the well-known Home- 
coming Dance will be held in the gym- 
nasium which is always well attended 
by many former students. 

On this day the "M" Club will hold 
its annual luncheon and meeting in the 
Ritchie Coliseum. The Board of Gov- 
ernors are making great plans for 
this meeting. A more detailed pro- 
gram will be published in later issues. 

Ralph Williams, '33, Returns 

as Assistant in Student Affairs 

Ralph Williams, '33, former presi- 
dent of the Student Government Asso- 
ciation, has returned to the University 
this year in the capacity of assistant 
in student life. Throughout his four 
years at Maryland he was very active 
in many extra curricular activities 
and student affairs. 

In Commemoration Of 

Dr. Samuel S. Buckley 

In commemoration of Dr. Samuel 
S. Buckley, deceased, a former presi- 
dent of the Alumni Association, his 
daughters, Misses Helen and Dorothy 
Buckley, have presented to the Asso- 
ciation, their father's collection of 
Reveilles, which is practically com- 
plete from the beginning in 1897 to 

On behalf of the Alumni Associa- 
tion the News takes this occasion to 
express the appreciation of the mem- 
bers of the Association for the gift. 
The volumes will be known as the 
Buckley Memoriam. Additional vol- 
umes will be added until the set is 
brought up to date.

Hay. Silber, Buscher and Benner 
are seniors. McCaw and Crecca are 
juniors and the rest came up from 
the 1932 frosh. 

One phase in which Maryland should 
show to advantage is in kicking. Nel- 
son and Widmyer did a good job of it 
last fall, and Yeager can boot the 
ball farther than either of them.

By LD. 1E.NNEY, '28 

We took a motor-car trip from 
Paris down through Southern France 
and eventually to Nice, from whence 
we made side trips to nearby Cannes 
and Monte Carlo. A year ago today 
I was putting one franc pieces in the 
slot machine in the Monte Carlo 
Casino just to show my indifference. 

From Nice we went to Venice via 
Genoa and Milan. And the pigeons 
in front of Saint Mark's Cathedral 
in Venice, for all of their notoriety, 
are just as impolite as the ones that 
roosted in the pine trees down by the 
Rossburg Inn. Disillusioning, that! 

At Venice we boarded the good ship 
Cor- for Shanghai. We stop- 

at Brindisi (Italy), Port Said, 
Bombay (India), Colombo (Ceylon). 
Singapore (Strait Settlements), and 
gkong. At sometime during the 
nine days between Port Said and 
Bombay (India), Colombo (Ceylon), 
as most of the passengers were help- 
ing me prepare for, celebrate it and 
nt was lost sight of 
I ■ must 
have been a good one, though.

HI ue Eagle and Green Terrapin 

By John P. Mudd 

A certain distinguished alumnus 
whose personal mail runs into hun- 
dreds of pieces every day told me that 
when he receives the Alumni News 
he always takes the time to read it 

from cover to cover. 

Perhaps your daily mail also runs 
into vol Limes and perhaps, in spite of 
the demands on your time, you share 
with this alumnus that same personal 
satisfaction that he gets in reading 
the news of Old-Line men and women. 
If you do like to get the Alumni News 
and wish to show your appreciation 
there are two ways of showing it in a 
very tangible way. One way is to 
occasionally send a contribution of 
news concerning other alumni and 
yourself as well. Facts that you may 
assume are well known may not be 
known to the officers of the associa- 
tion, or to the editor. 

Now the second suggestion about 
how to show your appreciation does 
not apply to you if your name has ap- 
peared in a recent issue of the Alum- 
ni News under the caption, "Response 
of Membership Dues for 1933-34." 
Men and women on this list have 
done their part in sending in their 
annual contribution of two dollars 
for their dues. 

We see in the windows of many 
homes and places of business a poster 
bearing a blue eagle, indicating that 
the owner of the establishment is do- 
ing his part in combating a great 
business depression. There is no 
great financial depression in the 
Alumni Association affairs, but the 
association really does need the sup- 
port of every alumnus. If an artist 
were to design a green terrapin pos- 
ter to use like the N. R. A. uses the 
blue eagle, and bearing the caption, 
"I have paid my alumni dues," many 
loyal Marylanders would rush to dis- 
play such an emblem. 

There is no such postei', nor is one 
necessary. Maryland men and women 
will do their part. 



When Preston 
L. Peach, '03, 
was on his way 
to the Malaya 
States, he and 
A. T. Schenck, 
'03, met for the 
first time in 
thirty years, in 

Portland, Ore. 


Alumni Send Sons and 

Daughters to University 

When the final count of the fresh- 
man class was made, which totaled 
something more than 500, it was 
learned that more and more alumni 
are sending their sons and daughters 
to Maryland. It was found that there 
are more than 75 members of the 
freshman class who are either sons, 
daughters, or relatives of former 

J. W. P. Somerville, '05, 

Mine Owner, Succumbs 

It is with regret that we announce 
the death of John Wesley Porter Som- 
erville, '05, a true and loyal alumnus. 
Born May 6, 1883, at Echart, Md., he 
was better known by his classmates 
as "Stubby." He came to College 
Park in 1901, and graduated in en- 
gineering in 1905. His first position 
was as a road engineer with Prince 
George's Country, which position he 
held until 1908, when he became trea- 
surer of the Moscow-George's Creek 
Coal Co. of Cumberland. In 1913 he 
was made president of the Midland 
Coal Co., which position he held until 
his death. 

He was the leader of the Cumber- 
land Group of the Alumni Associa- 
tion, serving as secretary and trea- 
surer since its organization some years 
ago. His daughter entered the Uni- 
versity this year. W. A. S. Somer- 
ville, '08, is his brother. 

The Alumni Association expresses 
deep sympathy to his wife and family. 

Medical Alumni to Meet

From November 14 to 17 one of 
the oldest medical societies of the 
country will meet at Richmond, Va. 
As a part of the three-day progi'am, 
the evening of the 16th has been set

thought of that when the State of 
Maryland became the guardian of the 
Maryland Agricultural College in 
1916, now the University of Mary- 
land, he was called upon to take the 
reins and direct its reorganization. 
He was chairman of the Board of Re-

The alumni of the University

Old I. it are interested in for 

more than one reason. 
To begin with, two oi the last three 
:' that month will be played at 
Coll k, with one of them being 

the Homecoming affair, and the other 
will be with Hopkins in Baltimore. 

Here is the card for the month: 
Not. I — \ a. at Charlottesville 
Not. 11— Duke at College Park. 
\.>\. 19 — Hopkins al Hosaewood. 
Nov. 25 — Washington and Lee at 
College I'ark (Homecoming). 
A lot of Maryland folk should and 

will drive to Charlottesville on Nov- 
ember 4. but the other games, of 
course, will pet more support from the 
old grads. And Maryland's preen 
1 getting better — and it is big 
enough — with every game should be 
good for its last rive contests, the 
rinal of which is with Florida in 
Tampa on December 2. That is the 
son that Hopkins — for one year 
only — was shifted from Thanksgiv- 
ing Day to November 18. 

• * • 

MARYLAND and Virginia appear 
;i par; Duke will present one of 
the South's leading elevens; Hopkins 
should be much improved over 1932; 
and Washington and Lee and the Old 
Liners should be pretty nearly on a 
50 basis for the Homecoming battle, 
although the Generals had more 
- at the outset than the Terps. 
Maryland and Virginia stand even 
with four wins each and two ties over 
etch of years; Duke beat the Old 
Liners last Fall in their only meeting; 
Maryland tops Hopkins with 14 vic- 
tories against 11 defeats and five 
deadlocks, and the Terps and Wash- 
ington and Lee have divided eight 
battles since the began hooking up in 
The Generals and Old Liners 
i!d furnish an ideal Homecoming 
attraction, as no finer spirit of rivalry 
and sportsmanship exist between two 

teams anywhere.

WHILE the Old Liners lost two of 
their first three games, the green 
team is playing good football and 
developing gratifyingly.

.Maryland played Vir- 
ginia Tech practically even, and with 
any sort of breaks would have gained 
a tie. Tulane got all its points in the 
20 minutes, one of the touchdowns 
coming after an intercepted pass and 
a run of 50 yards, and another on a

(Continued from Page 1) 

We eventually landed in Shanghai 
from whence I was shipped out lo 
Tientsin — where I have been stationed 
since- and went back to work to earn 
enough to pay for the pleasure trips. 

Tientsin is an excellent place and 
I hope that I'll be stationed there for 
some time to come. It is rather diffi- 
cult to describe a city such as Tient- 
sin, which, while bein^ part of China 
with the attendent customs, et cetera, 

controlled in part by other nation- 
alities, has a large foreign population 
and influence, and the atmosphere of 
a foreign city. So I'll limit my descrip- 
tion of the whole, present a few of the 
more interesting features, and let you 
form your own mental picture. 

(To be Continued.) 

A PAIR of AJs, both former Old 
I. mi- athletic aces, are handling 
a pack of promising yearling football 
players at Maryland, and should Bend 
a few Terps of high caliber up to the 
1984 Varsity. 
Al Heagy and Al Woods an 

the persons referred to and both an- 
doing other bits on the campus he- 
sides coaching. Heagy, who also 
coaches freshman Lacrosse and helps 
with basket-ball, is employed in the 

Chemistry Department and W I- 

ifi Working for his master's degree. 
Heagy, who got his sheepskin with 

the class •■:' '80, ■■ 

leading three-letter athletes, being a 
great football end, all-America in 

lacrosse as a defense player, and one 
of the best basket-ball guards ever 
to wear a black and gold suit. Woods, 
'.'!■';, who confined his efforts to the 
gridiron, was rated the best back in 
this section last fall. 

They had 33 youths toiling when 
this was written, out of about 50 who 
originally reported, the others having 
dropped by the wayside of their own 
free will. 

The first team, with weights and 
schools from which they came, is as 
follows : 

Robert Lenzen, 186, left end, Balti- 
more City College; John Birkland, 
180, left tackle, Clifton, N. J., High; 
Wallace Gramlich, 175, left guard, 
Tech High, Washington, D. C; Ed- 
ward Fletcher, 180, center, Tech High, 
Washington, D. C; Charles Zulick, 
185, right guard, Houtzdale, Pa. 
High; Edward Quigley, 190, right 
tackle, Gonzaga School, Washington, 
D. C; Daniel Carr, 165, right end, 
Gonzaga School; Blair Overton, 172, 
quarterback, Calvert School, Balti- 
more; Edmond Daly, 185, left half- 
back, Peddie Institute, N. J.; John 
Guckeyson, 180, right halfback, Bethes- 
da-Chevy Chase, Md., High; John 
Gormley, 190, fullback, lech High, 
Washington, D. C. 

This team aveages 181 pounds to 
the man, the line and backfield being 
the same. 

There are not many good line pros- 
pects outside of those named, but there 
are quite a few other high-class backs. 
Among them are J. E. Stonebraker, 
150, from Hagerstown High and 
Choate (Conn.) School; Coleman 
Headley, 160, a College Park boy who 
was at Hartrrave, Va., Military Acade- 
my for a couple of years; Charlie El- 
linger, 160, from Baltimore City Col- 
lege, and Herbert Bohnke, 165, and 
Arthur Wilson. 152, both from Tech 
High of Washington, 1). C. 

The baby Terps won their first 
game, defeating the Virginia year- 
lings, II to 12. despite the fact that 
Overton and Daly, two of Maryla; 
leading backs were unable to play 
of injui i 

The yearlings have five conte 

all, the other- beintf with the Catholic 
U., V. M. I., Washington arid and 
Georgetown freshmen. The ga 

with the Georgetown frosh will be 
played at 10:30 Hie morning of lb- 
coming Day, Novembei

which time registration for men will 
begin. The women graduates and 
wives of alumni, however, will register 
in the office of Miss Stamp, the Dean 
of Women, which is located in the Old 
Library Building. Special entertain- 
ment is being arranged, with the girls 
not to be outdone, as they will also 
have an athletic program in the morn- 

Thi' Junior-Senior hockey play-off 
will be the feature game. Also, the 
College of Home Economics is arrang- 
ing special entertainment for return- 
ing co-eds and wives of alumni. Grads 
in home economics in '32, are having 
a special reunion luncheon in the 
Practice House. A general luncheon 
foi all co-ed grads and wives of alum- 
ni will be held in the dining hall at 
1 '2:.\0 at a nominal cost to each. 

"M" Club Meeting 

In the Ritchie Coliseum the "M" 
Club members will gather at 12 o'clock 
noon for their annual luncheon, cafe- 
teria style, and the annual meeting. 
The election of officers, and the pres- 
entation of membership certificates 
to former athletes who have not re- 
ceived them, will be part of the pro- 
gram. A few other matters of impor- 
tance will be discussed. Every mem- 
ber of the club is urged to be present. 

An Alumni Dinner has been ar- 
ranged for those who will make reser- 
vation before noon of that day. It 
will be in the University Dining Hall 
at 6 P: M., at a cost of seventy-five 
cents per plate. Wives, sweethearts, 
husbands, and friends are invited to 
attend. No program of speeches — just 
an informal, social dinner. 

Homecoming Dance 

What will be probably the most ela- 
borate Homecoming Dance ever held 
in the University Gym will begin at 
9 P. M. A student committee, com- 
posed of seniors, are assisting in mak- 
ing arrangements. Noise makers, fav-

The Slide Rule Group 

It would be impossible to cover the 
field of successful alumni in the Col- 
lege of Engineering or any other col- 
lege, but from time to time the News 
will carry short accounts of a few. 
The items will make reference to their 
activites when students and as alumni, 
as far as known. 

John P. Collier, '03 

With respect to seniority, we take 
John P. Collier, '03. In 1900 he came 
to College Park from Ellicott City. 
His ability and rapidity in learning 
made him an "A" student and he was 
a wizard in math. He also partici- 
pated in the Glee Club as director. 
He clung to his profession as an en- 
gineer and today is manager of the 
Cincinnati branch of the American 
Radiator Co. His face is a familiar 
one when the clans of bygone years 
rally annually at College Park on 
Alumni Day. 

Harry D. Watts, '04, has followed 
the engineering profession ever since 
graduation. Today he is vice-presi- 
dent of the James Stewart & Co., Inc., 
nationally known builders. As a stu- 
dent he was a leader in military, ath- 
letics, and socially. He was cadet- 
major of the battalion and known by 
the fairer sex as "Major Harry." On 
the gridiron he was captain and full- 
back on the team of 1903. From the 
gridiron he stepped to the tennis 
court, where he was the school cham- 

W. A. Furst, '12, a graduate in 
Electrical Engineering, and an ardent 
student of the profession, today is 
manager of the Engineering Division 
of the Westinghouse Electric, in Pitts- 
burgh, Pa. "Fuzzy," as his class- 
mates would say, got his early train- 
ing as a director of men on the grid- 
iron, when he was quarterback on the 
team of 1911. 

Jere H. Sullivan, '21, one of the 

more recent grads in engineering, has 
ascended the ladder rapidly. Today 
he is a manager of the George A. 
Fuller Construction Co.. and is locat- 
ed in Toronto, Canada. "Jerry" has 
managed many a big job for his com- 
pany, from Florida to Canada. His 
recreation when a student, as it would 
naturally be for Sullivan, was foot- 
ball. His ability as a guard will be 
long remembered. 

Alumni Attend Tulane Game 

Maryland was not without rooters 
at the Tulane game. In the stands 
was a former football star and cap- 
tain of the 1923 football team, Thomas 
Jackson (Jack) McQuade. With him 
was Pete Schrider, port side hurler 
for the College Park diamonders in 
1923-4-5. Both Jack and Pete are 
now pilots in the U. S. Marino Flying 
Cor)) and they came to the game by 
plane from Pennsacola, Fla. H. W. 
Fristeo, '17, now county agent in Loui- 
siana, and his wife were on hand for 
the game, and Bozey Berger, Mary- 
land's contribution to the major 
leagues baseballers, held the side line 
stakes. Bozey has been playing with 
the Xew Orleans Pelicans this sum-

to call a halt. 

.Maryland, although its 1933 record 
is not up to snuff in games won and 
. has played good and interesting 
football all year, and should be just 
about right for the November 25 en- 

On the other hand, Washington and 
is having one of the best seasons 
in its history and the stage is set to 
give the Old Grads something worth- 
while to watch, win or lose. 

SEVEN sophomores have been in 
Maryland's regular line-up in prac- 
tically every game the Old Liners 
have played this season and they now 
have gained the needed experience to 
oppose a powerful team like the Gen- 
erals. And, while Washington and 
loubtless will go into the contest 
a favorite, a triumph for the Terps is 
not beyond reach. At any rate, it is 
certain to he a real grid battle.

Frosh Football Eleven 
To Help Entertain Grads 

Maryland's freshman football team, 
that contains some high-class Varsity 
hopefuls, has broken even in two 
games, defeating the Virginia year- 
lings, 1 1 to \2, and losing to the 
Catholic University cubs, 6 to 0. 

The young Terps will show before 
the alumni on November 2.">, playing a 
capable Georgetown freshman team 
at 10:00 in the morning. 

In the meantime the yearlings will 
travel to Lexington, Va. twice to play 
the V. M. I. and Washington and Lee 
frosh in that order. 


New Buildings 

The University's new building pro- 
gram is going ahead. The two-million 
dollar hospital has been started and 
plans for the Girls' Dormitory and 
Arts and Science buildings have been 
approved. The former is being erect- 
ed in Baltimore and the other two at 
College Park.

Separate parts of the place are for 
British, French, Japanese and Italian 
Concessions, which are controlled by 
Nationals of those countries. It has 
other parts which were formerly con- 
trolled by the Germans and the Rus- 
sians, but which have since been re- 
turned to the Chinese. And then there 
is the part which is, and has always 
been the Chinese native city. Sounds 
like an impossible conglomeration, but 
there is rather close cooperation be- 
tween the governing bodies of the 
separate municipalities and except for 
a few trivial things it is exactly as if 
it were governed by a single adminis- 

Annual "M" Club Meeting 

Fellow "M" Men: 

Ten years ago this fall the Byrd 
Stadium was dedicated, and for the 
first time the annual Homecoming Day 
was held. This fall we are celebrat- 
ing the anniversary of this monument 
in athletic history at Maryland. 

A most interesting program has 
been arranged to attract the return 
of all former students. Plenty of 
football, soccer and dancing. 

Naturally, everyone is interested in 
the football game, but I want to par- 
ticularly urge all "M" Club members 
to attend the luncheon and meeting 
at 12 o'clock in the Ritchie Coliseum. 
We will not delay you long, but your 
presence there means much to the fu- 
ture progress of the Club. 

Looking forward to seeing you, I 

Cordially yours, 

James M. Burns, 
President, "M" Club

tration. Most of the larger foreign 
firms are located in the British Con- 
cession and it constitutes the central 
part of the town as we foreigners 
know it, but as is to be expected, a 
large portion of the Japanese and 
French firms and residents locate in 
their respective concessions. Our of- 
fice is in the French Concession, I live 
in the ex-German Concession (on 
Woodrow Wilson St., which was for- 
merly Kaiser Wilhelm Strasse) and go

Homecoming Activities 

Interesting To Alumni 

When the final note was sounded 
November 25, it closed one of the 

most brilliant Homecomings Mary- 
land has ever enjoyed. A day which 

was full of interesting activities for 
the returning grads. both men and 

The outstanding achievement of the 
day was the come-back of the here- 
tofore losing football (earn to triumph 
in an impressive fashion over Wash- 
ington and Lee University. It was 
the rubber game in a series between the 
two universities, and at one time 
Maryland trailed by a score of 13 to 0. 
Then, with a faultless attack mixed 
with brilliant plays, the Generals 
were overtaken and the Terrapins 
were never to be headed thereafter. 

The spirit of the student body de- 
lighted the hearts of the old grads 
who joined in the cheering, which 
no doubt helped the team muster the 
needed punch to win. A new feature 
of the cheering this year was the 
girls' cheering section, led by three 
energetic girl cheer leaders. Pictures 
of them are shown on the first page. 

It was the yearling footballers who 
broke the ice of the day's program by 
engaging the Georgetown frosh 
in Byrd Stadium, but unfortunately 
they lost. Also, at the same hour, 
the co-eds were having their athletic 
program, in which the senior team 
was giving the juniors a lacing in 
hockey. Following the hockey game 
the College of Home Economics enter- 
tained the returning women grads 
and wives of alumni until lunch was 
served for all in the Practice House. 

A new attraction was added this 
year by the intramural soccerites, 
who engaged the Western Maryland 
College team, winning by the score of 
2 to 0. 

"M" Club Meeting 

At twelve, noon, hunger called the 
alumni to the Coliseum for their 
lunch, which was served cafeteria 
style. Immediately following the 
luncheon the "M" Club held its an- 
nual meeting and elected officers for the 
ensuing year. Maj. L. McD. Silvester, 
'11, succeeded his classmate, James M. 
Burns, as president of the club. New 
members elected to the Board of Gov- 
ernors were: Whitney Aitcheson, 
Frank Iseman, Omar Crothers, and 
Harold Remsberg. Dr. E. B. Fried- 
en wald and Dr. A. W. Valentine were 
elected to represent the former ath- 
letes of the Baltimore schools. 

The annual Homecoming Dance 
was held in the University Gymna- 
sium and was well attended. It ended 
a perfect day in a blaze of social 

Prominent among the returning 
grads was Melvin ('. Hazen, '88, re- 
cently appointed Commissioner of the 
District of Columbia, and chairman 
of the board. With him was Chief 
Justice Wheat of the District Supreme 
I 'oiirt .

J. Enos Ray, '92, vice-president of the 

Mr. C. C. Gelder, Member of 
Board of Regents, Succumbs 

M r. C. C. Gelder, member of the 
Board of Regents, died November 20, 
following a long illness. Mr. Gelder 
was a native of Eastern Shore, and 
lived at Princess Anne, Md. He was 
one of the leading farmers of that 
section and had been a member of the 
Board since 1920. Mr. Gelder leaves 
an enviable reputation of public service 
to the people at Eastern Shore. Inter- 
ment was made in Princess Anne Ceme- 
tery, of Somerset County. The Alumni 
News takes this occasion to express 
the condolence of the Alumni Associa- 
tion to Mrs. Gelder and family.

Fki.i.ow "M" Men: 

I wish to thank you, my fellow 
alumni, for the honor and confidence 
you have placed in me by electing me 
to the presidency of the "M" Club. It 
is my sincere desire to meet your ex- 
pectations. With your help we can and 
will meet our objective in increasing 
our membership and aiding the Uni- 
versity authorities in every way. 

We had a great time Homecoming 
Day, and those of you who were 
unable to be present missed seeing a 
wonderful football team in action. 
You missed greeting old friends you 
have not seen for years and receiving 
the real handshakes of friendship. 
Our Homecoming Dance was a most 
enjoyable affair. The "M" Club 
indebted to the University authorities 
for such splendid cooperation in mak- 
ing Homecoming Day the outstand- 
ing event that it was. 

There are over five hundred mem- 
bers of the alumni eligible for mem- 
bership in the "M" Club, and today 
approximately only twenty per cent 
of this number are active members. 
It makes no difference whether you 
are a graduate of the Baltimore 
schools or of those at College Park, if 
you have received your letter in any 
of the recognized sports of the Uni- 
versity, either before or after con- 
solidation, you are eligible for mem- 
bership. The dues amount to only 
one dollar (SI. 00) a year. 

All members of the club who have 
not as yet received their certificates 
will receive them upon payment of does 
In order to increase our membership, it 
is requested that every eligible mem- 
ber forward a check for one dollar, 
today, to Dr. E ry, Univer- 

sity of Maryland, College Park, Mary-

On The Ring Squad 

Losing live of his regular boxers. 
one by graduation, one by flunking 
and three by withdrawing, (of the lat- 
ter two withdrew from school and one 
from the "mit pastime"), Coach Jack 
Harmony of the Varsity ring team 
has a big job on his hands to turn out 
a winner. 

Harry Carroll, 125-pounder; Lyman 
McAboy, who fights in the 155 pound 
class, and Stewart McCaw, light-heavy, 
are the three letter men who form the 
nucleus of Harmony's combination. 

One of the hardest blows was the 
decision of Harold Burns, who is in 
school, not to box this season. He 
won all his bouts in the lightweight 
class during the last campaign. 

Harmony will get capable additions 
to his team at the end of the semester 
when four men, who are now ineligible, 
qualify for competition.

With a dozen candidates, a number 
of them l>9ing of highly promising ma-

past fall for the first time in fifty 
years. Braddock was on a visit East 
and looked up his classmate, and they 
visited the University together. It 
was Braddock's first visit to the cam- 
pus since graduation, but Riggs had 
visited more often, as he has been liv- 
ing nearer the University. 

Naturally, the most interesting part 
of their visit was the location of the old 
Barracks, and reminiscing about then- 
college days.

Alumni In Pittsburgh 

Have Organized Group 

By concerted efforts a very enthu- 
siastic group of alumni located in Pitts- 
burgh and vicinity has been organized. 
David Kerr Endslow, '26, is president, 
Dr. Bernard A. Goldman, '22, Med., 
vice-president, and Clay Wenner, '27, 
secretary-treasurer. David Kishpaugh, 
T«>, took a very active part in the or- 
ganization. He displayed real Mary- 
land interest and loyalty, the same as 
he did on the gridiron back in '15 and 
'16 by postponing a necessary surgical 
operation so that he might give his 
support in the organization movement. 

Several meetings of the group have 
been held with a membership reach- 
ing twenty-five or more, which includes 
every branch of the University. Fu- 
ture meetings will be held the second 
Friday in March and May at the 
Roosevelt Hotel. 

The editor had the pleasure of at- 
tending the last meeting held January 
12 and met very interesting and en- 
thusiastic alumni. W. A. Furst pre- 
sented a movie and talk about the 
Westinghouse plant, and Endslow 
about the manufacturing of Eatmor 
chocolates. Both men are employed by 
the respective firms. The editor made 
a few remarks about what was going 
on at the University in Baltimore and 
at College Park. 

The following were among those 


Ji epk v klacko, '26 ; Dr. Irving J. Morgan, 

Mil . Mr. and '•• • Trimble, 

M I i . 
E. M. W.-rmcr. '21 : Mr-. Ruth R M

When the Universities of West Vii 
ginia and Maryland met iber- 

land on .January •">, in basket-ball, 
many alumni were on hand rooting 
for their alma mater, even though 
they lost. Among those present were: 
K. P. Heintz, P. G. T. Twigg, H. B. 
Williams, Charles Beamer, Prank E. 
Stamp, Joseph Freedman, Walter B. 
.Johnson, and Dr. Toulson, Evelyn 
Miller, Pied Lawless, Marion Callis 
and many others. 

Dr. and Mrs. Joseph P. Franklin, 
'12, of Cumberland, are the proud par- 
ents of twins born August 29, 1933. 
They have been christened Joseph 
Powell, Jr., and Jean Arendes. Mrs. 
Franklin was Miss Jean Arendes be- 
fore her marriage. Dr. Franklin is 
county health officer for Allegany 
County, Md., and a leader of the 
Western Maryland group of the Alum- 
ni Association.

Robert D. Wilson, '32, Succumbs 

With great sorrow and regret we 
announce the death of one of Mary- 
land's outstanding athletes and gentle- 
men, Robert Darby Wilson, of the 
class of '32. Bob, as his schoolmates 
addressed him, was fatally injured in 
an automobile accident, and died at the 
Montgomery County Hospital, Sandy 
Spring, Md., shortly after Christmas. 
On behalf of the Alumni Associ- 
ation, the News takes the occasion to 
express condolence to Mr. and Mrs. 
Wilson and family.

Speaking About Tientsin 

In Tientsin the climate is perhaps 
the best of any place in China (except 
that I, personally, could use a warmer 
winter) in that it gets very cold in the 
winter and very hot in the summer, 
but is always dry and invigorating. 
The temperature remains below freez- 
ing for approximately two and a half 
months, but the sun shines most every 
day and it is not damply penetrating. 
Extraordinarily good ice skating — I'm 
speaking from an observer's viewpoint 
as my views as a participant become 
somewhat distorted, to say nothing of 
the more material damage to my other 
regions. Besides ice skating we have 
er, rugby, field-hockey, ice-hockey, 
basket-ball squads, bowling, riding, 
horse racing, tennis, baseball, swim- 
ming, golf and several other sports in 
thei seasons. My own athletic 

endeavors are confined to yoyoing — 
fatiguing, but the stamina and pa- 
tience I developed during my inter- 
ment at College Park forms an invalu- 
able background for it. 

Race Tracks 

The Country Club and Pace Club are 
exceptionally good and most of the 
social activities of the Europeans (ex- 
cept for a lot of the French who have 
their own club) and Americans center 
around them. A wonderful race course 
where we have several meets each 
year (amateur jockeys after the Eng- 
lish system) and which in the interim 

Campus Visitors 

Among the campus visitors during 
the Christmas recess were Elizabeth 
Norton, '32, now Mrs. H. E. Besley. 
"Libby," as she is better known, and 
Besley, (M. S., '32) were married 
August 26, '33. They are now living 
at New Brunswick, N. J., Where Bes- 
ley is engaged in teaching at Rutgers 
University. Another well-known 
visitor to the campus was "Biff" Baf- 
ford, accompanied by Mrs. Bafford and 
children. Mrs. Bafford was formerly 
Minna Edmonds, '29. "Biff" is em- 
ployed in Brooklyn, N. Y. 

Mr. and Mrs. Howard A. England 
of Elkins, W. Va., attended Homecom- 
ing while visiting Howard's brother, 
Walter England, '23, now employed in 
the dairy department of the Univer- 
sity. Howard is a member of the class 
of '25 and is in the creamery busi- 



Miss Hazel E. Watson, '29, daughter 
of Dr. and Mrs. J. A. Watson of Han- 
cock, Md., and Mr. James C. Schriver 
of Hancock, Md., were married on 
Wednesday, December 27th, at Cham- 
bersburg, Pa. Mrs. Schriver, while in 
school, was active in the various or- 
ganizations, and was president of the 
Footlight Club in her senior year. 
Since graduating, she has taught En- 
glish and Latin in the Hancock High 
School. Mr. Schriver is a graduate of 
Shippensburg State Normal and Get- 
tysburg College.

as a member of the Board. He is a 
former member of the Philippine Com- 
mission under President Wilson, and 
president of the Real Estate Board of 
Baltimore. Maj. Riggs has had a va- 
ried experience in military service. The 
two new members of the board were 
named to fill the vacancies caused by 
the deaths of Messrs. Samuel M. Shoe- 
maker and Charles C. Gelder. 

Mr. George M. Shriver, a member 
of the Board of Regents since 1928 
and recently reappointed for another 
nine-year term by Gov. Ritchie, has 
been elected chairman of the board to 
succeed the late Samuel M. Shoe-

of the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad.

dividual members. There is a special 
section of the stands set aside for the 
Chinese during race meets as they are 
keen enthusiasts and notorious bettors 
— we have the regular pari mutuel 
system. During the first big meets 
each spring and fall practically all of 
the big business houses close during 
the afternoons and twice each year 
there is a Champions race wherein the 
champion of all ponies is selected and 
on which a big sweepstake is con- 
ducted. Rodeos like me buy innumer- 
able SI (I. (Hi tickets and some lucky v<j;>j; 
wins about sixty or seventy thousand 
dollars for first place.

Midwinter Reunion Has 

A Large Attendance 

THERE were over three hundred 
mnj ■' M" and fac- 

ulty members of the University at the 
.Midwinter Banquet held February 21, 
in the University Dining Hall. Major 
Ralph Sasse, former football coach of 
West Point, was the guest speaker. 
"Athletics," said Major Sasse, " have 
a distinct place in the colleges and 
universities and would get along all 
right if the outside critic would let 
them alone." 

Melvin C. Hazen, '88, Maryland's 
oldest living athlete, now Commissioner 
of the District of Columbia, presented 
the Varsity "M's" to 18 football men 
and two managers of the 1933 season. 

Mr. Hazen was captain of the base- 
ball team in 1887, which performed 
the heroic feat of defeating both St. 
John's College of Annapolis, and the 
U. S. Naval Academy in the same day. 
Pres. Pearson Speaks 

Dr. R. A. Pearson, president of the 
University, and Mr. J. P. Mudd, '07, 
president of the Alumni Association 
made the opening addresses. 

An attractive program of enter- 
tainment was presented by the Coed

Washington Station of the National 
Broadcasting System, and the Heigh 
Ho Club of Washington. Donald

Annual Field Day 

Card Pretentious 

Maryland's annual field day, which 
will be staged on May 5, is going to 
be fully as pretentious as any that 
has been held at College Park in the 

As usual, the affair will comprise 
not only the interscholastic track and 
field meet, the basis of the occasion, 
but Maryland Varsity athletes will 
oppose collegiate rivals in four sports 
and one Old Line freshman also will 
be seen in action. 

Maryland Varsity teams are slated 
to meet West Virginia in baseball, St. 
John's in lacrosse, Catholic University 
in track and William and Mary in 
tennis, while the yearlings will stage 
a dual meet with Gallaudet. 

No change will be made in the pro- 
gram for the scholastic athletes. There 
will be the usual 13 events in the open 
scholastic competition with five con- 
tests: the 100, 220, and 440 yard 
dashes, broad jump and shot put 
closed to the county high schools of 
the State.

WITH 44 events on the calendar for 
the Varsity baseball, lacrosse, 
track and tennis squads and spring 
football practice to occupy about six 
Its, athletes are beginning to 
swarm the fields at College Park. 

Jack Faber and Roy Mackert will 
have more than 40 gridders going 
through the paces, the former will 
have fully 25 stick wielders when he 
shifts to lacrosse, Burton Shipley will 
drill more than 20 in the art of base- 
ball, Geary Eppley will have in ex. 
of 30 tracksters doing their stuff, but 
Bopst will have only about 10 
racket wielders in his efforts to build 
up tennis. 

These Varsity squads with the fresh- 
man aggregations in all the sport 
mentioned, along with the intramural 
activities, will occupy all the ground 
that is available shortly. 

f.rid Outlook Bright 

Maryland has about the likeliest 
football squad it has had in years and 
unless there are unexpected los 
between now and next fall the eleven 
should be able to take care of itself 
in pretty good shape during the 1934 

There are only seven letter men left 
for lacrosse, and despite the fact that 
a number of good recruits came up 
from the 1933 yearlings, it will be 
difficult to turn out a team as good as 
last yea: 

The baseball team, unless it has 
pitching troubles, should get along 
pretty well, and the outlook would 
have been fairly rosy had not Shipley 
lost Ray I):. -outhpaw hurler, 

who failed to return to school. How-

Everybody was gratified with Mary- 
land's indoor sports season which was 
brought to a close when the Old Line 
boxers defeated Penn State at State 
College on March 3. It was a fine 

While Shipley's Varsity basket-ball 
team might have won a couple more 
games it did well enough in taking 11 
of 18 tilts during the difficult cam- 
paign, and, with the boxing squad 
combined, put on a lot of fine enter- 
tainment and drew large crowds. 
Their twin bills were extremely popu- 

To help out, the freshman basket- 
ball team figured in 16 contests tak- 
ing 12 of them and will send up four 
or five players to help fill the gaps 
that will be made in Shipley's Varsity 
by graduation. 

Four Will be Lost 

The Varsity basketers, to whom 
Spencer Chase, Rufus Vincent, Bob 
Snyder and Bucky Buscher will be 
lost, had one of their off days in the 
Southern Conference tourney and lost 
to Washington and Lee in the first 
round. However, the Generals kept 
on to take the title. 

In addition to taking six of eight 
meets in a hard schedule, Coach Lieut. 
Jack Harmony's boxing squad fur- 
nished a Conference champion in Stew- 
art McCaw, 176-pounder, and had Ly- 
man McAboy, 1")."). and Al Farrell, 
heavyweight, reach the finals. McAlmy 
douhtless would have won the title 
had he not received a had cut over

Some Alumni Who Are 

High School Principals 

There are a few Alumni who are 
performing good work in the State 
public school system. A former 
track star of the crack relay team of 
l'.'l'C' has been advancing in good 
strides. Joseph S. Endslow, '26, is 
now principal of the Dublin High 
School at Street, Maryland. He also 
gives instruction in agriculture, mathe- 
matics, general science and for his 
recreation coaches the track aspirants,

"The Fighting Irishman." "Joe" went 
with the United States Government as 
farm manager for Federal Prison

i . i , 

always a high spot of the spring Bpo 
calendar in the South Atlantic sector, 
this year promises to to be the most 

pretentious ever held. It will be staged 
May .") with seven different 
marking the program. 

While it is held primarily as a track 
carnival for the benefit of the high 
and prep schools of Maryland and 
nearby states, the lacrosse tilt between 
the Old Liners and St. John's that will 
climax the day's activities will be the 
feature of the intensive and attrac- 
tive card. 

Here is the complete menu: 
12:30 [nterscholastic meet, with the regu- 
lar IS events and 7 closed to t h<- county hi^h 

Schools of the SI 

12:80 Dual meet, Maryland freshmen vs.

1 :00 Tennis, Maryland VS. William and 

1:00 Lacrosse, Maryland v>. St. John's. 

Forty or more institutions have tak- 
en part in the school track competi- 
tion each year and the list this year 
probably will be greater than ever. 
There will be a constant bark of the 
gun once the meets get underwa;. . 
all of them will be run concurrently. 

Noted Athlete to VMt 

Maryland has some clever trackmen 

led by Earl Widymer, the flashy 
sprinter, but William and Mary will 
present the ace of the South in V 
roe Little, intercollegiate broad-jump 
champion, who also runs the 1 « ► « ► and 
220 and hurls the javelin. In a meet 
against Dartmouth, he won all tl 
events, except the 100, and ran second 
in that. 

William and Mary also has a great 
athlete in Platl Billiard, who is a star 
in the 440 and half-mile.

Maryland and West Virginia should

Now is the time for all Alumni to 
tfive their assistance to the University 
in several ways. 

Naturally those who are athletically 
inclined will first think about Field 
Day which will take place May 5, at 
College Park. The next date promi- 
nent in the minds of alumni is the Re- 
union June 2. at College Park, a time 
when old acquaintances are renewed 
and loyalty to the University is re- 
vived. However, the most paramount 
project that should be given worthy 
consideration at the present time is the 
encouraging of hi^h school students to 
go to college if it is possible and logical 
to do so, and MARYLAND is the place 
for them to go. 

The general Alumni Association is 
asking all alumni who live in those 
towns where hi^h schools are located. 
both within and outside the State, to 
gel together and make contacts with 

the prospective students. This is prob- 
ably the greatest help that the Alumni 
Ociation can give, which will assure 
the University a wealth of new stu- 
dents of the quality necessary to carry 
on the principles and traditions of our 

Alma Mater. 

Those alumni who enter into this 
work are at liberty to call on the 
alumni office or 'be University for 
literature or assistance in encouraging 
high school graduates to come to

Company in W. Virginia 

Thanks to Alfred Henry Clark, '26, 
who took the matrimonial step June 
2 1. 1 :».'!.;. for the following news about 
our fellow alumni connected with the 
apeake ami Potomac Telephone 
Company of West Virginia, in which 
he is chief clerk of the commercial 
department. Clark married Miss Mar- 
gery Griffin, of Brooklyn, N. Y., a 
graduate of tin- Pratt Institute. 

Then there is W. R. Trimble, '27, lo- 
cated in the business office, who has 
been a married man since March 19, 
1932, when he and Miss Maxine Dur- 
reth of Huntington, W. Va., made the tie. 

Leroy (Slim) Sheriff, '27, is with 
the same company, but located at 
Beckley, West Virginia. His matri- 
monial venture began in October, 1931, 
with Miss Hope R. Hebestein, of En- 
deavor, Wisconsin. "Slim" was a 
member of the great relay team of 
1926, which won the Perm Relay In- 
tercollegiate Championship. 

W. Roy Cheek, '28, a single man, is 
in the accounting department and lo- 
cated in Charleston.

gomery County, and in 1877 was 
awarded the degree of Master or Arts. 
A year later he journeyed to Cali- 
fornia where he continued his teaching 
profession for six years, returning to 
Maryland in 1884, and locating on a 
farm near Poolesville, Maryland. In 
addition to farming he again taught 
in the public school until 1927 when he 
retired. .Mr. Davis was given a Teach- 
er's Life Certificate by the State Board 
of Education several years ago in re- 
cognition of his meritorious work in 
public school teaching. 


Mr. Davis' first and last "Inaugu- 
ration" experience was during his col- 
lege days when Grant was inaugurated 
for his second term. It was of such a 
disagreeable nature due to the inclem- 
ency of the weather that he has never 
attended another inauguration. 

As for athletics during his days at 
College, they consisted of competitive 
matches among the students in corn 
cutting, corn husking, plowing, and 
many other phases of agricultural pur- 
suits, lie also has said that in those 
days, baseball was played to some ex- 
tent among the students. 

Members of Mr. Davis' family have 
i prominent in the hi the 

University. Bis son. Eorace M. Davis, 
Jr., is a graduate of dentistry in the 
class of 1905. He was a football 
player of note for the Baltimore 
Schools in those days. Also. Mr. Davis' 
son-in-law, Arthur Hershpergor. per- 
formed on the diamond at the College 
Park Schools in 190 1-05. 

Mr. Davis makes his home near 
Poolesville. Maryland, and enjoys a 

conversation about the old school days. 
<>n June 11 he will have reached his 
eighty-third birthday.

The formal dress during the warm 
season consists of black trousers, 
(thinner than the ordinary dinner 
jacket material) black sash, short, 
white duck messjacket, stiff shirt and 
tuxedo collar and black tie. I under- 
stand they are now being introduced 
at home. We go into white suits 
from June until September and most 
everyone wears shorts — though no- 
body in the American firms wear them 
in office. Very cool and practical but 
often an offense to the esthetic senses. 

We work six hours a day with two 
hours interval at tiffin — of great as- 
sistance if one has been out the pre- 
vious night and also affords plenty of 
time for a swim during the summer. 

Pigtails Do Exist 

As to some of the more well-known 
Chinese customs — very few pigtails 
exist any more except in the more re- 
mote interior places. The men don't 
wear skirts — they wear long coat- 
like gowns. Bound feet are still very 
common. The men wear their hats in- 
doors (except in foreign offices and in 
places where foreign customs prevail). 
Rickshaws are very comfortable and 
most of the women wear long trou- 
sers (I think Marlene Dietrich got 
the idea over here), and that's all I 
know about the Chinese ladies. Soft 
cloth or felt shoes are worn by an 
overwhelming majority of the Chinese. 

Basket-ball and soccer football are 
their most popular games. They are 
exceptionally good at the latter. 

Thus ended "Ed's" description of 
China and its customs.

Spring Football Briefs 

Roy Mackert, boss of the physical 
education department, is all alone in 
directing the spring football practice 
since Jack Faber is giving undivided 
attention to the Varsity stickwielders. 
Roy has about 30 gridders doing their 

hour a day. 

* * * 

Maryland's gridders have been given 
quite a batch of plays they will use 
next fall and if we were a betting 
man we would wager a simoleon or 
two that they originated in the fertile 
brain of none other than Vice-President 
H. C. (Curly) Byrd. And incidentally, 
the grid squad looks pretty good and 
if all the boys jret back next autumn 
the Terps will be no set-up for any- 
body's eleven. 

Cf Olin Beall, '17, now a lieutenant in 
the United States Marine Corps and 
stationed at Port au Prince, Haiti, 
paid the campus and Bill White a 
visit this fall. He had some tall yarns 
to tell, so we are told.

I suppose my classmates of '21, 
wonder what I am doing in Costa 
Rica. Well, a year or so ago I had an 
opportunity and I jumped at it to try 
and beat the depression, and I think 
we arc going to beat it. I organized 
a company to exploit the palm nuts of 
' al America. 

The Government of Costa Rica has 
given us a concession and after a year, 
we are ready to go to work. I have, 
with my friend Doug Rollow, explored 
practically all of Costa Rica. We have 
done everything from shooting baboons 
and tigers to sailing a fourteen-foot 
Cayuca off the coast on the Pacific 
Ocean. We have crossed the moun- 
tains 12,000 feet up on horse and cut 
our way through the jungle, and it has 
all been one great experience. Con- 
trary to what one mitrht think after 
reading about Nicaragua, this little 
country is one of the most beautiful 
Bpol an imagine. The tempera- 

ture is about 68 F. Overcoats at ninht 
and ordinary clothes in the day. The 
people are wonderful, practically all 
■•peak English, although I now speak 
Spanish like I bad been born here, 
however, It is not necessary, but I do 
it just to know I can.

1)\ the time this is read, it is likely 

■*-* that the spring sports season at 
Maryland will have been completed, 
the final tilts were listed May 19, 
when Hopkins was booked in lacrosse 
in Baltimore and the Terp trackmen 

were to figure in the Southern C'on- 
nee championship meet at Duke. 
t the spring campaign 
up to the time this was written were 
the victory of Karl Widmyer in the 
100-meters and the triumph of the mile 
relay team on April 2S in the Pennsyl- 
vania Carnival. Widmyer stepped the 
100-meters in the fast time of 10.7. 
Maryland, with Cornelius Cronin, Bob 
Archer. Bob Sonen and Warren Evans 
doing the running, won its mile relay 
in 3:22.7, the third fastest time for the 
ance daring the two-day classic 
games. This broke the Maryland mark 
of 3:23.4 made in the same games in 
by Leroy Sheriff. Louis Thomas, 
Clump Matthews and Joe Endslow. 

Many Records Smashed 

Incidentally, some Terp track rec- 
ords are taking a beating this year. 
Here are some others that have earned 
places on the book: 

100-yard dash— Earl Widmyer, 
He also tied Gump Matthews mark of 
21.4 for the 220 that was made in 1928. 

22 yard low hurdles— Bob Slye, 
sophomore. 2

Discus — Bill Guckeyson, 133 feet LO 
inches, breaking mark of 129 fe< 
inches by John McDonald in 1 

yard run — Warren Evans, 
bettering by 1 5 second the old record 
of Joe Endslow made in 192

With Bopst steering the tennis 
ship, the net game is on the upgrade 
at Maryland. The team won six of 
nine matches and laid the foundation 
for better things. This pastime had 
been at a low ebb for quite a spell. 

Stick learn I'.clow Standard 

Weak in a couple of spots, especially 

on the attack, the Old Line stick team 
was not quite up to standard this year, 
but its only really bad showing came 
when St. John's won on field day at 
College Park, May ."). by 8 to .!. 

St. John's is capable but the Terps, 
playing their best, would have had an 
even chance. However, the 1935 ten 
should put the Old Liners back on the 
title running. 

Later. Xavy and Maryland played a 
6-6 thriller at Annapolis, five extra 
periods failing to break the deadlock.

d Maryland's freshman baseball and 
tennis teams this spring were well 
above the average, and the yearling 
track team in addition to Guckeyson, 
will send up Coleman Headley, a mid- 
dle distance ace; Joseph Ryan, a flashy 
sprinter, and Harley Drake, who is 
showing capabilities as a pole vaulter, 
and maybe one or two others of note. 

There also are several lacrosse 
players of worth among the young 
Terps, notably Charlie Ellinger, who 
as a member of the 1933 Baltimore 
City College team, was rated the King 
of the Monumental City schoolboy
